I have 195 bad sectors that won't be moved to that reserve section on my HDD.
So how do I make the OS ignore them?
I've deleted all the partitions and tried to write over them, but...
I think I heard 'BadBlocks' fixes things like this, but I didn't know where to get it or even how to use it.
Can somebody help?
I don't care if it crashes completely in the near future; I just want it to work for now, so I can have a boot of Ubuntu to try out.
I'm confuse :c
I know the disk is bad. I just want the installation to keep on writing past the bad sectors. The disk is damaged and likely to fail in the near future. I just know it's functional enough to use for a month or two; but the install won't go. Maybe I should explain how the hard disk failed. My brother hit the side of the computer as hard as he could, which then fell off the desk with the hard disk running. Do I have to fix them via that process, or is there another way to get the install to keep on trucking past the bad sectors?
